On this segment of Rides with Jay Thomas, Jay catches up with Alec Heesch to check out his 1961 Buick LeSabre that Jay's nicknamed "The Beast."

Heesch spent around 6 months merging together a 1982 Chevy K10 Pickup and a '61 LeSabre. On Rides, if it's cool, it has a story and you can drive it, it can be on the show and this Buick checks all those boxes.

"Rides" is hosted by radio personality, Minnesota native and North Dakota resident Jay Thomas. The show features cool cars or just about anything with an engine. Know of a ride in the region that Jay's just got to see? Email him at rides@wday.com
